to realize that perhaps digging in on things like the public option, on expanding medicare, on closing the doughnut hole maybe is a better strategy for winning over that 60th vote, but unless we win over the country on this debate, we can't do any big thing like this without muscular clear leadership on -- outside the beltway which we just haven't had. >> what are you going to do different? you tried to pass the bill in the senate. you couldn't get more than 60 senators. now you've got 59. what can you do different going ahead that you didn't do before? what's the change? i don't get the change here you're proposing. >> i think here's the difference. we've been obsessing recently, what is olympia snowe going to do and joe likeman and ben nelson? >> but you don't know. >> what i'm saying, trying to get to 60, we lost sight of that's not the way americans look at this challenge. they want improved health care with lower costs and things like that. i think that the president of the united states at his state of the union address should do for health care what he did today is say, look, we

say that. i would just tell them if we do nothing, the medicare trust fund would be exhausted in seven years. the plan we have before the senate would extend the life of medicare for nine more years. if we do nothing, there will be 57 million americans uninsured instead of 47 million in just a few years and the cost of the average health insurance plan for the average family of four will double in the next ten years if we do nothing. that's why we think this is a serious issue. >> schieffer: i don't think anybody would argue that it is not a serious issue, senator durbin. let me just ask you this. what senator mccain said. he said he is willing to try to get some republicans to sit down with democrats and see what you agree on. what would be wrong with that just saying here's what out there. we agree with this. we don't agree with that and pass what you agree on. wouldn't that be a start? >> there's nothing wrong with it. but, bob, for the record, president obama met personally with the republican leaders in the house and senate before this began and engaged them and asked them, be par
